The shipping date for the Sideshow Collectibles Diablo Polystone Statue is drawing near — Expected to ship November 2013. Sideshow has updated the statue with brand new lights which make the statue stand out even more than before when plugged to a power source. This Limited Edition consists of 2000 statues.
There are two pre-order options. The flat price is $349.99, with the Flex Payment Plan for as little as $105.00 and a non-refundable $35.00 to secure your copy.
Sideshow Collectibles is proud to bring you the Diablo statue, from Blizzard Entertainment’s hugely popular action RPG Diablo III. In a brilliant collaboration between the award-winning Sideshow Design and Development and Blizzard Cinematics teams, led by Sideshow Collectibles Creative Director Tom Gilliland and Blizzard Cinematics Creative Director Nick Carpenter, the Prime Evil’s chosen form comes to life, crafted in high quality polystone. The Diablo statue measures over 20 inches tall, hand painted and finished with painstaking attention to detail. Possess it now, before it possesses you.
on eBay (UK). The item has a “Buy Now” price of £450.00 sold by a third-party, not directly by the ex-employee. Seller feedback is 100% with 39 feedback comments. That buyout price is definitely a bargain considering its collectible value. This bust was given exclusively to Blizzard Entertainment employees and only 5000 units were produced by Sideshow Collectibles.
This is a mega exclusive bust which is no longer available. My research has told me only 5000 where produced and that they were only given to staff members employed at that time.
The box itself didn’t come with a seal but ive shown the seal on the internal packaging to prove this has never been opened or used.
Don’t miss out on something that is so exclusive!
Please contact for exact postage costs. The quote given was to post it to Greece from the UK after a time waster winner.
Vaeflare and Grimiku confirmed in the official Diablo III forums there will be a known Necromancer NPC in the expansion. There are few Necromancers that can actually be a reference here for someone we are familiar with.
Vaeflare: If you’re keen to see what the Necromancer has been up to since the events of Diablo III, you’ll be pleased to know that you’ll have the opportunity to meet up with him once more in Reaper of Souls!
Also as Josh Mosqueira stated the interview with King Konger and elsewhere, we do not currently have any plans to add another class to the expansion. We feel the Crusader class is a truly epic, and fitting addition to Reaper of Souls, and we’re excited to share more about it with you in the months ahead. — source
Grimiku: Vaeflare confirmed it earlier, but there is no harm in saying again. You’ll get a chance to meet a familiar necromancer npc, but the only additional playable class in Reaper of Souls is the Crusader. We’ll have more information to share about the Crusader in the coming months, but this armored, battle-worn, veteran will be a mighty addition to hero roster of Diablo III. — source
Nameless Necromancer: This is the playable Diablo II Necromancer. To my knowledge none of the Diablo II playable classes had a name. However, the nameless Barbarian in Diablo III is the same we met as a playable character in Diablo II. We got to meet the original heroes of Diablo I in Diablo II actually. The Rogue in Diablo I (member of the Sisters of the Sightless Eye) was actually Blood Raven in Diablo II (Act I). The Warrior in Diablo I turned out to be The Dark Wanderer (aka Leoric’s son: Aidan) in Diablo II. Lastly, the Sorcerer in Diablo I turned out to be The Summoner in Diablo II (Act II, The Arcane Sanctuary). Thus, it might be possible for the Diablo II Necromancer to make a cameo in Diablo III: Reaper of Souls.
Kara Nightshadow is another well-known necromancer from the pages of Diablo: Legacy of Blood (also reprinted in the Diablo Archive). She helped Norrec Vizharan (the mercenary treasure-hunter who found the armor of Bartuc the Warlord of Blood).
Nate Kenyon wrote on twitter he is having a hard time to decide which novel to write next. Apparently he got his hands full with project offers. It is unknown if one of these are coming from Blizzard Entertainment, but in case that was so — “c-o-m-e–c-l-o-s-e-r …” — “How about we give him a little encouragement to go our way?”
Let the armies of Blizzard lore scholars, fans, merchandise collectors, and novel-munching-zombies decide for him. Send him a tweet to encourage him to pick any Blizzard projects available.
The Diablo III (PlayStation 3) pre-order bonus offer ends September 3, 2013. The Pre-order bonus includes the “Infernal Helm” in-game item with +Experience Bonus, and an Amazon-exclusive digital wallpaper.
The Diablo III (PlayStation 3) goes on sale this upcoming September 2, thus make arrangements really quick to benefit from this special bonus offer.
As the Cataclysm rips through Azeroth, Warchief Garrosh Hellscream orders the best warriors of the Horde to come forward and serve in a new army, lest their foes in the Alliance sense weakness and attack. We meet these warriors as they come forward – from very different lands, backgrounds, traditions…Will they be able to overcome their deep differences and work together to serve the Horde, especially when challenged by a powerful, unfamiliar race claiming to be the real rulers of Azeroth?
The novel featured Kalecgos and the dragon aspects after Deathwing’s defeat. They reunited for a last time at the Wyrmrest Temple to disband. On his way out, Kalecgos senses a magical artifact beneath Galakrond’s skeleton.
The artifact turns out to be the very artifact for which Tyr lost his hand during a battle against Galakrond.
The magical item forces Kalecgos to relive the past experiences of Malygos in an era before the Titans blessed the dragon aspects, a time when they were mere proto-dragons.
Pre-order World of Warcraft: Dawn of the Aspects to add it to your collection of World of Warcraft lore. In this novel, Tyr is hinted to be used sometime in a future expansion. He was last seen in the present at the Nexus and at the Dragonblight.
What triggered Tyr to come out of the woodworks? More importantly … will there be a connection between Tyr and … Wrathion at some point?
You didn’t hear wrong. It is August, and no — it is not April’s Fool. Blizzard Entertainment has announced the World of Warcraft Trading Card Game by Cryptozoic Entertainment is coming to an end. Looks like Blizzard wishes to focus all the artistic talent into producing cards internally for the Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft instead.
While the CCG, expected to launch at the end of 2013, is free to play — players can use the in-game store to buy up to 40 packs for $49.99. It’s a more attractive model for players. Those who wish to earn the cards the old fashion way may do so free. Those who wish to buy the cards instead have the freedom to do so. The good question to make now that the TCG is coming to an end is whether Hearthstone will have special loot cards on the free-to-play model or if at least these will be adopted by the Hearthstone in-game store.
Cryptozoic published the following statement at their website.
We are very grateful to the incredible community of players that have made the World of Warcraft Trading Card Game such an amazing experience. Timewalkers: Reign of Fire, the 21st installment to the World of Warcraft TCG, will be the last. Reign of Fire has been one of the fastest selling sets of all time and has been overwhelmingly well-received by drafters and deck brewers alike. While we are sad to see the World of Warcraft TCG end, we are proud to see it end on such a high note.
We hope that you have enjoyed cracking packs and playing with the most iconic characters in the Warcraft universe as much as we have. From raid and dungeon decks to unique heroes, each with their own deck-defining powers, the World of Warcraft TCG has left an unforgettable mark on the world of trading card games. Darkmoon Faires have long been a place for the most friendly and welcoming gaming community on the planet to come together and share their enthusiasm in a competitive, yet friendly, environment.
It has truly been an honor to be a part of such a passionate community that continues to grow year after year. The World of Warcraft TCG holds a special place in our hearts here and we are thankful to Blizzard for allowing us to be part of it.
In addition, Blizzard Entertainment posted an official word about the end of the WoW TCG.
We wanted to take a moment to thank all of you World of Warcraft Trading Card Game players out there for your support of the game for close to seven years.
We’ve had a blast working on it, and we knew that Set 21, Timewalkers: Reign of Fire would really grab everyone’s attention. In addition to delivering original and fun gameplay mechanics and giving players a new way to explore the story of Warcraft III, it’s stuffed with every single one of the much-sought-after Loot cards from each of the previous sets.
Set 21 represents something else as well: it’s the climactic last set for the WoW TCG. We are grateful for being able to collaborate with the artists and everyone else who helped make this game a reality all these years. We’re also thankful for all the players and retailers who’ve participated in the community globally. You made ripping open booster packs, discovering the wonders they held, and then building decks and taking them into battle a truly awesome experience.
Thank you all again for your support in making the WoW TCG one of the most epic trading card games of all time.
Q: What about my loot cards that I haven’t redeemed yet?
A: You can still redeem your loot cards on our website (simply follow the instructions there).
Q: Will there still be tournaments for the WoW TCG?
A: While there will not be official tournaments hosted by Cryptozoic or Blizzard Entertainment, players are able to continue organizing tournaments as long as they follow our tournament guidelines listed here.
Q: I’m an artist/tournament winner; who should I contact if I have any questions?
A: Please contact Cryptozoic for any follow-up inquiries.
Q: Will you be renewing the contract for the WoW TCG with another partner?
A: While we don’t have any specific announcements to make at this time, we don’t expect to renew the license for the WoW TCG.
